Most Construction Sites Set To Close Under New Measures

Government ministers are expected to sign-off today on closing schools and most construction projects until the end of the month. However Social housing will be exempt.

Schools for children with special needs are likely to remain open, while creches will be allowed to provide childcare for essential workers, but there are calls for more clarity on what exactly is an essential worker.

A requirement for people travelling into Ireland to provide a negative Covid-19 test is also expected to get the green light from Cabinet, along with plans to replace the current click and collect service operating in shops with delivery only.
